Recycling Centres close for refurbishment

Household recycling centre refurbishment programme

The current contract for the management of Wiltshire’s household recycling centres with Hills Waste Solutions ends in October 2017.

The council invited tenders for this service to ensure best value for Wiltshire residents, and awarded a contract to FCC Environment for the management of nine household recycling centres owned by the council.

Hills Waste Solutions will continue to own and operate Purton and Lower Compton household recycling centres under contract to the council.

The transfer of the nine council-owned recycling centres to FCC Environment will take place on 2 October 2017.

FCC Environment and the council then plan to carry out a phased programme of site improvements during October, November and December. Each site will be closed for between one and two weeks to allow for these improvement works to take place.

The closure programme aims to ensure that disruption to residents is kept to a minimum. Works are expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The briefing pack details when each of the household recycling sites will be closed for refurbishment and what changes residents should expect to see on the sites once they re-open.

There are also a number of frequently asked question responses which have been prepared. An online version of these will be continually updated throughout the refurbishment programme.
